Piercing, Tattoos and Spa Services

The HKPR District Health Unit inspects manicure, pedicure, piercing and tattoo studios (personal service settings) to help ensure operators and facilities are following proper infection control practices to help reduce the risks to clients. Exposure to blood or body fluids can lead to a number of blood-borne infections, including Hepatitis B and C and HIV.

If you decide to have a service done at a personal service setting, be sure to choose an inspected facility. You can contact the HKPR District Health Unit before going to be sure the facility follows infection prevention and control practices. It is also smart to learn more about what you should look for in a personal service setting before choosing to have a procedure done.
